Last August when I started to share my story I shared it in a forum, not long after that I fell in the category that society likes to call the rape conceived an evil seed. I quickly stood up for myself and the many others that are conceived in rape.
Society looks at those conceived in rape as products, evil seeds, and will become just like the rapist. Society likes to dehumanize those that are conceived in rape, incest and poor in utero babies. The Society also calls us damaged goods.
Not that long ago I read an article on Lifenews.com where Delegate Brian Kurcaba of West Virginia took a stand for life and said those conceived in rape are beautiful. Thank you Delegate Brian Kurcaba for standing up for me and the many others that are conceived in rape.
When I found out I was conceived in rape, I questioned God, Why? The still small voice in my heart and also from the word of God says in Jeremiah 1:5 “Before I formed you in the womb I knew you, before you were born I set you apart; I appointed you as a prophet to the nations.” (NIV) I continued to feel in my spirit to not worry about the circumstances and to allow God to use me for such a time as this. I allow God to use me to be a light and share the truth that all people are created in his image, and no one is damaged goods in God’s eyes. We are all created in his image to worship him, to have a relationship with him and he fearfully and wonderfully made us. Psalms 139:14 says I will praise thee; for I am fearfully and wonderfully made: marvellous are thy works; and that my soul knoweth right well. (KJV) Psalms 139:13 says, For you created my inmost being; you knit me together in my mother’s womb. (NIV)
I am thankful that I am created in his image, and I was knitted together in my birthmother’s womb and to God I am his reward. He calls me his daughter!!
